NEWS FLASH! The First Two Pages by Sylvia Warsh

Sylvia Warsh

Greetings Readers!

As you know, The Mesdames’ latest anthology, In the Key of 13, is centerstage on Art Taylor’s blog, The First Two Pages!

Art invited three Mmes to reveal the craft behind the first two pages of their stories in our anthology.

Sylvia Warsh is Art’s third guest and this is timely, too, because the story she’ll be discussing is “None Shall Sleep”, which is nominated for a 2020 Derringer!

“None Shall Sleep” is a dark story about revenge. Galina, a star of the Moscow Opera, is sent to a labour camp on a trumped-up charge where she falls into the clutches of Nikolai Petrov, a party official. He forces her into sexual slavery and to serenade him with the arias of his favorite opera, Turandot. Upon her release from prison, Galina escapes to Canada, but she has lost her voice forever. Years later, by random chance, she encounters Nikolai again. What will she do?

Sylvia has taught creative writing for many years. She is an Edgar Award winner and her novels and stories have been honoured many times, including nominations for the Arthur Ellis and Derringer awards.

Art Taylor is a critically acclaimed author of short crime fiction, the winner of multiple Agatha, Macavity and Derringer awards. In 2019, he won  Edgar Award for Best Short Story.

PUBLICATION NEWS

The Italian Cure

Mme Melodie Campbell‘s The Italian Cure, published by Orca books is now available in print and as an ebook.

Charlie’s world comes crashing down when her fiancé leaves her for another woman. Then Aunt Della wins a trip for two to Rome. Maybe Italy can cure her broken heart?

Melodie Campbell

Charlie and Aunt Della board the tour bus in Rome and meet a fun and diverse group of travelers. Rocco, the tour guide, is particularly attractive. Charlie isn’t the only one who thinks so. The bus driver, Tony, is also her age. They become friends and explore sites together.

Charlie quickly falls in love with Italy. Who needs romance when you have Rome, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast?

But with adventure comes danger in the ancient ruins of Pompeii. Charlie wanders from the group and is mugged. She chases the thief who stole her purse into the far reaches of the ruins. Lost and alone, Charlie finds courage she never knew she had.

Physical courage is one thing, but will she risk falling in love again? Anything’s possible in The Italian Cure.

The Light in Trieste

Mme Rosemary Aubert‘s new book The Light in Trieste, Carrick Publishing is now available in print and ebook forms.

Rosemary Aubert

The Light in Trieste is a novel of international intrigue that spans three centuries. It’s a tale about illegal immigration: the story of an empress, a refugee and a prostitute, three desperate women in three different time periods, each attempting to use the same stolen antique scientific instrument to bribe her way into a new life in America. It’s a work of fiction based on true events in the past of a remarkable city.

In a novel inspired by the unusual life of Sisi, Empress of Bavaria and renegade wife of Franz Joseph of Austria-Hungary, Aubert follows the fictional path of the glowing prism once owned by Sir Isaac Newton, which in real life resides at Cambridge University.

SPOTLIGHT ON SOCIAL MEDIA 

We’ve got some wonderful bloggers among the Mesdames. This month we’d like to shine a light on Mme Lisa de Nikolits and her two blogs. Her series, Interview With An Author on Goodreads will continue with renewed frequency and The Minerva Reader will continue to shine the spotlight on unsung treasures that you might have missed.

In October, 2019, the day before the release of our fourth anthology, In the Key of 13, (Carrick Publishing) the Mesdames were honored to be the subject of a truly wonderful CBC Gem Short Documentary video.

Only 15 minutes long, the video highlights four of our members: Lisa de Nikolits, Melodie Campbell, Jane Burfield and Donna Carrick. Behind the scenes, though, the film could not have been made without the contributions of all of our members, including our honorary member, Director and visionary, Cat Mills, as well as CBC producer Felicity Justrabo.

We hope you will enjoy. Please stay with us till the end of this short labor of love, for insights into the minds of women who love murder!
